I am one of the Top Contributors to the official Google+ Help Community.
I have been acknowledged by Google to be a Google+ professional.

Helping others "get" Google+ is my passion: However, I don't work for Google, I'm a volunteer TC.
As a Top Contributor, I provide support to users of Google+ via Google's Product Forums and Google+ Help Community. I work directly with Google personnel, both acting as a liaison between Google customers and Google, and providing product feedback and suggestions to Google's product teams.

G+ Help to Goobies given!   

I'm the mother of these Google+ expressions:

I live in Jyväskylä, Finland.  Have visited about 450 destinations in 46 countries.  Used to work as a tourguide in several countries for 8 years absorbing history and present day culture, then as a production  & sales manager in a leading travel agency. Have been lecturing and coaching a lot.

I like languages very much (nobody speaks Finnish :-) and here is a list of those that I speak / understand, starting with the most fluent:

  • Finnish, English, Swedish, Spanish, Carelian
  • Italian, French, German, Portuguese
Cannot read or write but have some verbal skills:
  • Greek, Thai, Arabic


About me in Finnish:

Tervetuloa Plussan puolelle kaikki suomalaiset!

Suomi -yhteisö kaikille meille, mukaan vain!

Yritykseni Gplussa sai siivet toukokuussa 2012.
Tarvitsetko Social media community manageria hoitamaan Google+ -sivuasi?

Mistä on kyse, Jaana Nyström?

Kuinka minusta tuli kouluttaja sekä yhteisömanageri:

Ryhdyin yrittäjäksi "vanhoilla päivillä" eli viisikymppisenä ja vaihdoin kertaheitolla ihan eri alalle kuin missä olin viettänyt viimeiset 23 vuotta -> matkailu.

Kiinnostuin sosiaalisesta mediasta varsinkin pienyrittäjien näkökulmasta: Ryhdyin miettimään jo omankin yritykseni kannalta kuinka olisi mahdollista saada some-näkyvyyttä ihan ilman mainosbudjettia tai rahankäyttöä. Valtavasti opiskeltavaa on edelleen, homma muuttuu melkein joka päivä: Uutta tulee mutta jotkut parhaat pysyvät.

Olen erikoistunut Google+ -alustaan: En edes sano some-alustaan koska minulle Plussa on työkalu.
Olen Suomen seuratuin Nobody - Plussan puolella.

Tässä on hyvä haastatteluvideo joka varmaan kertoo olennaisen:

You don't need to drop the people who have not circled you back: Google+ is not like some other follower-friend-obsessed platforms!

Here on Googleplus it's okay just to follow interesting people and not have them follow you back. Topics and interests are more important to many of us who want to learn new things on Google+, than people.


Before you get to know the people who share your passions or interests they are not so important as the topics. Find the communities and posters who share the topics, join / circle them and be ready to learn.
This is different from FB where you already know the people but might not share the same interests with them...

There is a Chrome extension called +Circloscope for uncircling those who haven't circled you back, but if you follow someone famous or interesting and want to enjoy their posts, don't expect them to follow you back.

The limit for circling is 5000 and if someone has more followers, it's impossible to circle all back.
Think of someone who has 100 000 or a million...  No way.

Just enjoy the great content in your home stream and think of circling as a one-way street. If someone circles you you can circle them back but if you don't find their posts interesting, just forget all about it and uncircle them.

Anyone who circles you can only see your public posts. They can't see your Auto Backup photos or posts you share with your Circles.  Your circles can't see your photos unless you decide to share them.

Please don't read more to this post than is meant: People are important but not just at first when you're looking to join communities or create those circles that will bring you knowledge and pleasure.

In case you missed my blog article:
Google+ is not going anywhere!

Many tech writers have been declaring Google+ dead even before there are any changes done under the new management.

Well?  Why?
One can use the Hangouts and Photos as part of the Google+ social glue that is what we see now, just like before. 

Presumably people who don't wish to use Google+ can use these as stand-alone products but that doesn't take anything away from us already in the Circleverse. Hangouts already has it's own support pages and I'm hoping that Google+ Photos will have them, too.

The Material Design that Google has already started implementing across products may change the visual side but to my mind only improving it.

Think about the Photos: Making it also a stand-alone product but still keeping it integrated with Google+ would open up a huge new audience for our publicly shared pics!

Remember what +Yonatan Zunger wrote about +Bradley Horowitz taking over and +Sundar Pichai commenting about internal reorganisations:

"No big user-facing changes tied to this at all."

PS: My text was checked by a Googler before publishing.

Separating the chaff from the Google+ wheat

Splitting up Google+ seems to be the horror scenario. 

Google+ as we know it will not be torn apart, just because some parts of it will get more attention at the time being. I don't think for an average user there will be any big difference. 

Google Drive was split into Docs, Sheets, Slides and Forms which can be used separately but it didn't kill or spoil the product, right? There's still the Google Drive for those who want the whole caboodle...

I suspect they are doing the same thing they have done before.  When it was originally launched, when you signed up for a g-mail account you automatically had to create a G+ profile.  That was not popular and there are still G+ profiles with nothing ever posted because of that.  They are probably just going to offer users that don't wan the whole package the option to just use Hangouts or Photos.   Those that use the entire package probably won't see much difference.

I also agree with +Miles Bader regarding the comments from many journalist that don't even use G+.  Of course it looks like a ghost town if you just show up out of the blue without taking the time to seek out interesting people or communities to follow.  At least it isn't a continuous stream of cat videos and re-shared click bait!  If certain features on G+ keep those folks away... PLEASE DON'T CHANGE THAT.

It's nice to see all sorts of updates galore from Google, yay!

"We've also made lots of under the hood improvements that will allow us to build even more great features going forward."

- A harbinger of interesting things to come? :-)

Finland number one in the Press Freedom index

"Press Freedom Index judges that in Finland the press enjoyed more freedom last year than in any of the 180 countries analyzed.
Finland tops the Press Freedom Index for the fifth year in a row. Three Nordic countries are in top of the list: Finland is followed by Norway and Denmark.

The Press Freedom index is an annual index made by The Reporters without Borders.
The index ranks the performance of 180 countries according to criteria that includes for example media pluralism and independence and the respect for the safety and freedom of journalists.

Although this year’s index is flattering for Finland, it highlights the worldwide deterioration in freedom of information in 2014. The index point out that media freedom is in retreat on all five continents because of wars and economic crises.

According to the Reporters without Borders, countries that are renowned for their economic stability such as Finland, usually also guarantee media freedom in a durable manner."

Big launch for the team today!  We've hugely improved Google Contacts.  The once tedious task of "managing" your contacts on Google has been made a lot easier, more intelligent... and more beautiful...  The launch is still a 'preview', so go to, check it out, and let them know what you think!
